    Plain popcorn popped without fat is 4.5 Syns for 25g, if you pop them with fat this goes up to 7.5 Syns per 25g

    Lol good question I would count it as 25g once popped as this is how it's worded and when you look at the Syns for branded already popped popcorn it is a similar syn value

    Well I popped 25gm of popcorn yesterday and was surprised how much it made !! Was enough for me hubbie and the kids to share !! Think this would be good to have as a little snack in work instead of craving chocolate !
